The crew managed to drop two anchors, but the force of the ocean swell combined with heavy winds to push the vessel closer to the rocks.
Even without power, the port authority managed to move the ship about 20 nautical miles offshore and out of immediate danger.
An initial plan to lift non-essential crew off the ship was abandoned after the ship became stabilised.
Today, work will continue to try to repair the ship’s engine bay.
But similar heavy weather to yesterday could see the danger of the ship’s drifting return.
Swells are set to reach 5.5 metres, while winds in excess of 95km/hr have been registered.
That will combine with ongoing heavy rain to obstruct all rescue efforts.
